Mahalakshmi Amma - 6
« on: April 25, 2009, 10:46:59 AM »
T.R Kanakammal, continues...

Early next morning, when Bhagavan Ramana enquired where the
child had been buried, he was told, 'Somewhere outside.'  Bhagavan
Ramana remarked, "This child could have been buried here, but if
that had been done, this place would become a general burial ground."

When I (Kanakammal) narrated His comment to Mahalakshmi, during
her next visit, she felt tremoundously comforted and said:  "The
child's spiritual future has been assured!"

Mallikarjuna Rao, was a tall, hefty and robust looking.  Mahalakshmi
was tall as well, but slim and delicate.  Her frail frame belied her
mental fortitude, resoluteness and indomitable inner strength. She wore a sari in the Andhra Brahmin style, and like Suri Nagamma, was endowed with luxuriant, long, dark hair.  But she lived an austere and orthodox life with self imposed rules of physical and mental discipline.  She would get up at 3.30 am everyday and after a bath,
engage herself in puja and parayana and reciting her favourite book, Grantha Mala (The Complete Works of Bhagavan, in Telugu).  Her major occuptation during the day was telling the beads of a mala
(rosary) with Bhagavan's name. Even while engaged in household work, like cutting vegetables, or cooking, she would be speaking
mentally to Bhagavan, saying, " Bhagavan!  I am making such and such vegetable today, as per your command."  Thus with her mind focussed on Bhagavan and with all her constant thoughts and actions centred on Bhagavan, she created an atmosphere permeated with the presence of Bhagavan and revelled in it,  wherever she was.
